Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood reveals Scare Zones and Tickets Go on Sale

The Walking Dead returns to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Florida


The website for the Hollywood version of Halloween Horror Nights was updated today and revealed what scare zones will be coming to the event this year.

Here are the scare zones and their descriptions via the official HHN website:



There is something terrible happening deep underneath our city streets! For decades, people have carelessly dumped dangerous chemicals down their drains, not thinking about the consequences of their actions. All that toxic waste has had a terrible effect on the denizens of our sewer systems – spawning a hideous new hybrid that is part pest/part man! Now these persecuted pests are rising up from the sewers to turn the tables on their human oppressors! They say insects alone outnumber humans 200 million to 1 on this planet! We don’t stand a chance!



Dark Christmas:

For most of the world, Christmas is a time for holiday cheer but in certain parts of the world, it is a time of fear and dread. Since Pagan times, people have secretly celebrated the dark side of the holiday season with terrifying tales of demonic creatures that hunt down disobedient children and drag them to Hell! The most famous of these creatures is Krampus, The Christmas Devil…the evil version of good ol’ Saint Nick. Now that Krampus and his mythological companions have been unleashed on the streets of Universal Studios, it’s going to be a Scary Christmas for all! Have you been naughty or nice?




World War I, the “The War to End all Wars” has left a swathe of destruction through war-torn France. The merciless slaughter caused by machine gun and mustard gas has turned “no man’s land” into a field of corpses and the constant artillery bombardment has turned the twisted network of trenches into a sprawling graveyard! Now, the slain soldiers known as the “The Lost Generation” are rising from their muddy graves and coming home…to haunt the streets of old Paris!



The Purge: Urban Nightmare

The last place you want to be during the annual Purge is out in the city streets after dark! During this 12-hour period of government-sanctioned lawlessness, average citizens take to the street to hunt anyone they come across! To make matters worse, paramilitary units led by the infamous “Big Daddy” have also been dispatched to this location to help keep up the government’s “kill quota.” Will you survive this urban nightmare?

In other HHN Hollywood news, tickets went on sale today for the event as well.  Tickets to this year’s event are available for purchase at www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com/hollywood, including a “Killer Deal Nights” ticket option with discounts of up to $25 on select dates as well as a Front of Line ticket option which enables guests to enjoy priority access to each “Halloween Horror Nights” maze, “Terror Tram,” Jabbawockeez show and theme park attractions.
